If there is driver support for her laptop, then yes, it just requires an XP disc.

Is the disc a CD or DVD?

If it's a DVD, then it requires a different media player. If that's the case, try VLC media player.

If it's a CD, the OS isn't the problem. The problem would have to be with the disc, CD drive, or the media player.

In any case, the first thing I would do, is run the scan I mentioned above.

By the way, restore discs are tailored to the specific computer they came with. They have drivers on them for that hardware. They aren't full retail copies. So, no, you wouldn't be able to use them.
